Column: Not even Clara Voyant could have foreseen this connection

A reader’s fond email about ’50s-’60s KFWB disc jockey Elliot Field was not only funny, in recounting the various on-air characters Field invented, it led me to a surprising find connected to two recent columns. Also: more about Biddy Mason and a personal recollection about Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s visit to Claremont, all in Sunday’s column.

Column: Accused councilman calls into ‘awkward’ meeting

I follow up on the recent Pomona drama involving the disgraced councilman with some subsequent developments, like that he attended a second closed-session meeting (#awkward) and also that a member of Congress has denounced him. And I spare room for a sendoff for Kent Crowley, a local history buff and gentle character who boosted the connections of “Wipe Out” and Frank Zappa to Rancho Cucamonga. Both those items are in Sunday’s column.
